    Ive talked to some of you about this and now here it is. I will be doing a group buy on the books and Vidios by John and Geri McPhearson.
    For those not familiar with them or thier work, they teach classes twice a year to the instructors from the specialforces survival training schools (SERE instructors) as well as other various military personel. They wrote 10 booklets on 10 different survival/primitive skills topics from braintanning buck skin to makeing promitive bows, arrows and cordage to friction fires to trapping with nothing but natural materials to flint knapping to make tools, building shelters and much more. These booklets became the 10 chapters of thier first book, 'Naked into the wilderness. primitive wilderness living and survival skills', they then wrote a sequil to this book which adds on to this information and a third book on building of log homes, they also have several vidios that demonstrate and further explain the information from the books. These books are not just writen as a look at these skills from or for folks setting in an easy chair, they are writen as step by step how tos by folks who have lived it and done it for years for folks who want to be able to learn to DO these things for themselves. I have personaly read these books and done what they teach purely from the books, some of the skills he showed me in person when I visited him, but they are all explained in the book as well as he can standing beside you. They will teach you to obtain and preserve you food, shelter, clothing, tools, and more as few other books can even come close to.

    As a group buy I can get the booksa and vidios for 50% off the retail prices on his web site, I will then sell them for $5 per item over this cost, $2.50 to pay for postage and shipping materials, and $2.50 per item to give me a little something for my time so I can get a couple books for me out of it. So the books will cost you a total of $17.50 delivered saveing you $7.50 per book and the vidios will cost you a total of $20 delivered saveing you $10.00 per vidio.
    In order to get these deals I have to order a MINIMUM of 10 items at a time so I will take orders untill September 15 or untill we get a minimum of 10 items ordered which ever is later, then I will collect the money and once all the money comes in I will place the order. Once I place the order I should get the books in about a week or just under and will send them out in less than a week, it will then take up to a week for them to be delivered by USPS media mail, as this costs CONSIDERABLY less for your postage.
    Several folks on here bought these from me in an earlier group buy I did on another board and I will try to get a thread set up for them to give opinions on the service and the materials.

    Here is a link to thier site where you can look over the stuff that is being offered.

    Which vidio would you want? If we cant get the intrest I have a couple extra copies of the book 'How To Build This Log Cabin For Around $3,000' and can sell you one of them on the deal anyhow, its the only book I do have extra copies of.

    Ok, I tell you all what, I want to see if we can get these books out because I truely think they are the best books around on basic survival skills showing how to get by on nothing but whats laying around in the woods. So Im gonna make this an even better deal, if we can get at least 15 items total ordered on here I will put your the name of everyone ordering something in a hat once for each item they order and draw one person to recieve one of my autographed copies of Naked into the wilderness 1 or 2 at thier choice, signed by both John and Geri McPhearson. If you havent read these books, dont be worried about being 'stuck' with more than one copy of the same book, after I read my first copy I was fortunate enouph to get to go out and work with him on a project he was doing and took a chunk of my payment in the form of more copies of his books since I knew I would like to pass them on to folks I knew and also that I wanted a copy for the house to look through from time to time to refresh on some things and also a copy for each vehicles emergency kit. These are truely awsome books and vidios, and trust my, Im not makeing enouph of these by a long shot to buy an endorsement. So order your copy (ies) and get a free chance to win an autographed copy in adition to your order at a great price.

    Well looks like this will be extended longer than I thought to get up to the minimum order of 10 items.
    This is realy a great deal on these books, they are being sold well below the price that the author who self published the book sells them for on his web site and far less than you would be able to get them at any store that was carrying them. If you already have a copy and would like to get extras or a copy of some of his other stuff this is a great way to do it, if your friends dont have a copy send them a link and if you dont have a copy, this is about the most useful book you could ever have if you do any back woods hikeing and camping or if you would like to learn skills that would allow you to survive well in the wilderness.

    Is anyone still interested in this? I had thought there was more intrest before I put this up, but if it will get this going I will even drop the $2.50 per item on it and have it just $2.50 over my cost to cover the postage. We just have to get a total of 10 items ordered for this to go through and these would also make great Christmas gifts for anyone intrested in survival as well as those just in to backpacking or any primitive skills like tanning, trapping, flint knapping or primitive pottery and more. The book on how to build a nice log cabin for around 3k is also available. Let me know if theres any intrest.
